Description

Arts Catalyst and the Schering Foundation presented this new exhibition of work by Revital Cohen and Tuur Van Balen, centred on a major new commission Sterile / Sensei Ichi-gō. The exhibition was curated by Jens Hauser and Nicola Triscott, Arts Catalyst.

Sterile / Sensei Ichi-gō draws attention to the ambiguous identity of animals designed as products. It centres on albino goldfish specifically designed to be born without reproductive organs, presented alongside a machine - put in stand-by mode - that is capable of reproducing such sterile fish to demand from pre-extracted sperm and eggs.

Other works by the artists showing in this exhibition include the short film Kingyo Kingdom which explores the unique culture of breeders, collectors and connoisseurs at the Japanese national goldfish competition, giving a cultural context to the design and commodification of this species, further explored in Sterile / Sensei Ichi-gō.

Sterile / Sensei Ichi-gō and Kingyo Kingdom were commissioned by Arts Catalyst.
